In conjunction with the Global Meetings Industry Day
“Today, Sarawak joins in the global conversation to advocate the real impacts and real results of Business Events. This sector has the capacity to bring about real change to communities, especially to those who need it the most,” began Amelia Roziman, Chief Operating Officer of SCB.
Apart from channeling efforts into the construction of a chapel at the resettled Bidayuh village of Kampung Sting, SCB also contributed basic homestay facilities in supporting the village’s shift from agriculture into eco-tourism.
“Business Events is a catalyst legacy-building to champion sustainability and economic growth within the state. It lends a hand to developing the core of each sector, from imparting expertise in key areas to elevating brand profile. This is what our campaign, Redefining Global Tribes, aims to achieve – to unite Business Events communities under one global identity in establishing a stronger economy,” concluded Roziman.
The Global Meetings Industry Day, an initiative of the industry-wide coalition Meetings Mean Business is celebrated annually on 12th April to showcase the undeniable value that Business Events bring to people, businesses and communities. With more than 120 events held worldwide in 2017, this year’s celebration bears the tagline “real results, real impact, all around the world” and encourages industry partners worldwide to share the positive impacts of Business Events.
